This silver award was struck by the city council of Louvain. It was given for civil gallantry, eg stopping a runaway horse and cart, disarming robbers, etc. It has its original silk ribbon, somewhat faded. The medal is about 32mm in diameter.

Just to let you know that the bayonets arrived safely this morning and I am extremely happy! They are everything that I had hoped they would be, but better! I am extremely pleased that i purchased them from you. The 1867 Albini ... is an absolute beauty, the blade is immaculate. The other is in fact in far better condition that I had imagined as well. So all in all, I couldn't be happier! Many thanks Chris.
I very much look forward to doing business with you again in the near future.
